As the name suggests, this place specializes in Yunnan food, specifically something called crossing the bridge noodles - a one-dish meal that’s one of our single favorite things to eat in Sunset Park. It arrives disassembled at your table, with raw strips of beef or lamb, some vegetables, a heap of rice noodles, and a large bowl of extremely fragrant (and very hot) chicken broth to cook everything. If you don’t feel like consuming a large amount of soup, there’s also plenty of other stuff like rice cakes, broth-less noodles, and meat-filled dumplings in a sweet and sour broth (another great choice). This place is cash-only, and it’s ideal for a quick weeknight meal with a group.

The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.

Green Garden Village
Green Garden Village is a BYOB restaurant in Chinatown with hit-or-miss Cantonese food.
Macao Trading Co.
"Look for the red lantern," instructs the Macao Trading Co. website. This is how you will know you have reached your destination - the Portuguese colony of Macao circa 1952, "a fugitive's heaven from which there is no turning back." Awesome. We're apparently having dinner at Universal Studios tonight.
Shanghai 21 is a great place to have a group dinner in Chinatown (but you might have to wait in line for it).
